Alternate World Art Exhibition: Chad McCail’s “Toy” at Sunderland Glass Centre

A new exhibition featuring a giant capitalist robot and an enormous snake is opening at at the Northern Gallery in the National Glass Centre.

Contemporary artist Chad McCail spent three years creating the exhibition titled Toy.

It represents McCail’s ideas surrounding the capitalist ideology and disconnect between the many and the few.

A spokesperson from Sunderland’s Glass Centre said: “In McCail’s work, the cities we know are transfigured into a mythical space, in which a war is being fought between the many and the few, not only for control of the city, but for the very idea of freedom.”

This is McCail’s first new project, releasing after a 25 year anniversary exhibit was unveiled in Distanz, Berlin to celebrate the artist’s work so far.

The exhibition opens on Friday February 14 and runs until April 19.
